Rewilding European Landscapes by Henrique M. Pereira, Laetitia M. Navarro

By Henrique M. Pereira, Laetitia M. Navarro

Some eu lands were steadily alleviated of human pressures, quite conventional agriculture in distant components. This ebook proposes that this land abandonment could be visible as a chance to revive average ecosystems through rewilding. We outline rewilding because the passive administration of ecological successions having in brain the long term objective of restoring ordinary atmosphere tactics. The publication goals at introducing the idea that of rewilding to scientists, scholars and practitioners. the 1st half offers the idea of rewilding within the ecu context. the second one a part of the publication at once addresses the hyperlink among rewilding, biodiversity, and habitats. The 3rd and final half is devoted to functional features of the implementation of rewilding as a land administration alternative. We think that this booklet will either set the root for destiny learn on rewilding and support practitioners take into consideration how rewilding can occur in components lower than their management.

Impaired Wetlands in a Damaged Landscape: The Legacy of by Kevin P. Timoney

By Kevin P. Timoney

This paintings is a systematic monograph that examines the plant life and plants of ordinary mineral wetlands compared to mineral wetlands laid low with bitumen exploitation. The paintings is of wide relevance simply because (a) wetland loss and degradation is a world challenge; (b) the ongoing international raise in fossil gas exploitation is leading to frequent harm; and (c) bitumen (tar sands, oil sands) exploitation is a quickly becoming and damaging set of actions. The middle of the paintings is a meta-analysis of 417 plants plots. Analyses of swap over the years and chemical and actual attributes of water and soil are provided for the subset of plots with adequate facts. the aim of the paintings is to illustrate that: (1) There are marked variations among average and industrially-affected wetlands. (2) Industrially-affected mineral wetlands range from usual wetlands of their crops assemblages, their depressed crops and species variety, and their abundance of unique weeds. (3) profitable post-bitumen mining wetland reclamation has no longer been comprehensive and should now not be possible in the foreseeable destiny given the ecological and actual stipulations of the commercial wetlands, present reclamation practices, and lax regulatory criteria.
